Christianity and Minor Attraction

Christianity is not incompatible with minor attraction. Contrary to popular belief, there is nothing in The Bible that forbids it.

Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians 7:36 reads:

“But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.”

“Flower of her age,” in my belief means “reached menarche” which is the first stage of puberty in girl children. I interpret the passage to mean that once they are at that age, they can be married. And for a marriage to be valid, it must be consecrated with sexual intercourse. Thus a sexual relationship with a pubescent child is not morally wrong, as long as it’s in the confines of marriage.

Supporting that theory is that traditional Jewish custom dictates adulthood starts at 12, which is about the start of puberty.

Now as for pedophilia, it doesn’t necessarily say one way or another. But in the beginning, God created us. It’s speculated by many that Adam and Eve were children, while in the Garden of Eden. They had the perfect bodies, created in God’s image. When Adam and Eve sinned, Eve and all females were made to bare children. This means she was forced to go through puberty, so she could do so. Some scholars have stated that Adam and Eve’s bodies changed… skin thickened, and made rough and rugged to withstand the world outside the garden. As you know, children have such smooth skin and complexion. But this goes away when they hit puberty. They are innocent, not knowing about the world, until around puberty as well.

Jesus said we must be like children to enter the kingdom of God. Children are pure, and innocent. How can you not love something that is so God-like? My love for children is a love for God. But just like I won’t desecrate God, I won’t desecrate a child.
